I agree... most people are very nice most of the time.

Yes, I think they are quite nice too, most of the time.

But everyone is capable of being unreasonable from time to time and having bitch fits over not much.

And there are also some genuinely nasty pieces of work out there...........

..all apart from the dragon lady receptionist at my local GP. She's scary she is.

Other than that I agree!

Receptionists start off nice, and they are de-programmed I think!

I'm very nice, I'd never say that I had a friend who looked like an alien in drag, oh no, not me.

Yes I think that's true. Most people are really quite nice. Although I'm saying that from my sunny little country village, rather than say, some war torn hell, where that probably would sound a bit daft.

yes indeedy most people are nice

Metella Wed 05-Aug-09 18:41:05

I agree!

grin she only looks like that sometimes! also she is probably the friend with Highest Capacity for Being Annoying and making awful comments about fat people (I am fat people)

but you know, underneath all our little foibles and less desirable traits most of us are pretty decent aren't we?

am so touched by how nice people are being to me and my family at the moment, without being asked, like bringing us food and asking if there is anything they can do while I'm Very Mildly Unwell

Most people are nice.

Doesn't quite make a headline, but it is true.

My SIL is very lovely. Maybe I should tell her that rather than posting it on MN. I think niceness is increasing in our society at the moment.

Reminds me of a story I once heard:

A man travelling along a road to a new town stopped an old man on the road and asked him "what are the people like here?".
The old man asked "What were they like where you came from?"
"Very friendly and nice"said the traveller.
"I think you'll find them like that here too" said the old man.

Later that same day, another man was travelling along the road when he stopped the same old man on the road and asked him "what are the people like here?".
The old man asked "What were they like where you came from?"
"Grumpy, unfriendly and unhelpful!"said the traveller.
"I think you'll find them like that here too" said the old man.

Yes they are.

Overmydeadbody Wed 05-Aug-09 20:51:04

I agree

MitchyInge Wed 05-Aug-09 20:51:51

need to remind self of this when wandering into threads where really odd, hostile attitudes are displayed

skybright Wed 05-Aug-09 21:01:33

I think so but if they are tooooo nice then underneath i think they are bitches.
